UK Politics Betting Markets


The UK political betting market is huge and continues to grow rapidly. There are many different types of markets to place a bet on and the following are the most popular:

  • Next Prime Minister Odds: The next Prime Minister betting market is constantly available regardless of which point we are at during an electoral cycle. 
  • Next Party Leader Odds: Another market that has seen a spike in popularity in recent years is the next party leaders markets. Like the next Prime Minister betting markets, markets such as the Next Conservative Party Leader run all year around. These can often present some excellent value if you have a good insight into the way a party is leaning.
  • Prime Minister Betting Specials: While some of the bets in this market offer serious specials on things like the Prime Minister’s leaving date, a lot of these markets tend to be a bit of fun and are novelty based.

Next Prime Minister Betting Odds


Unlike in the United States with US Presidential Elections, the Prime Minister in the UK doesn’t necessarily become PM as the result of a general election. 

A Prime Minister can take over parliament in the UK in the middle of a parliamentary term and may not even be voted for by the British public.

As a result, there are often some very interesting odds to be found in the next Prime Minister betting market. A member of parliament may not be too popular with the public, but they could have enough influence with MPs to end up becoming the country’s next PM.

Here at FreeTips.com, we keep all of our readers up to date with any of the big changes in the next UK Prime Minister betting markets.

UK General Election Betting Odds


General elections are used in the Unied Kingdom to determine which party is going to have a majority in the Houses of Parliament and as a result, rule the country for the next five years.

The UK Election betting markets are among the most attractive for punters. Another way people often bet on general elections is to bet on individual seats as opposed to betting on the entire general election.

UK By-Election Betting Odds


By-Elections are elections that take place in the UK to determine who will be the MP for a selected constituency. They usually take place because the previous MP has resigned from his or her post.

By-Elections, unlike general elections, do not have a fixed date, and can take place at a very short notice if an MP is forced to step aside. 

They can often be useful when it comes to placing future bets on other elections as they can be seen as an indicator of the way a country is feeling between elections. A major Conservative MP losing out on a seat that has traditionally been held by the party, for example, can often imply that there is a momentum swing in the country’s politics.

Here at FreeTips.com, in the run-up to the next General Election you'll also find constituency betting markets available for every part of the UK.
